Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, has asserted his influence within the New Patriotic Party (NPP), stating that no major decision within the party will be made without consulting him.
He made these remarks at a “Showdown” Thanksgiving party for his supporters and coordinators held following the NPP presidential primary.
Mr. Agyapong thanked his campaign team and emphasized the underestimation they faced in the run-up to the primary, claiming that their performance demonstrated their influence within the NPP, claiming control of one-third of the party.
“They underestimated us, but we’ve proven to them that we now control one-third of the NPP,” Mr. Agyapong went on to say. “No major decision will be taken without consulting us.”
Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia won the NPP presidential primary with 61.47% of the vote (118,210 votes). Agyapong received 37.41% of the votes (71,996 votes) as the closest contender.
Despite his defeat, Agyapong’s statement demonstrates his conviction in the importance of his influence and role in the party’s decision-making processes.
